One of the biggest reasons for creating MommyLuvs2save was to create a community of moms and dads who want to help their family save money when buying essentials in order to free up money for debt repayment. My own family has paid off over $111,500 in consumer debt including credit cards, student loan debt and 2 vehicles. I am a teacher at heart. I want to use the skills that I have learned to help YOU ditch debt. I want to encourage each of you in your efforts so that one day you can feel the freedom of being debt free. I’m not quite there yet either (we still have a mortgage) so I need encouragement as well
It can be very difficult to pay down debt. There are many temptations to spend money. We live in a culture that encourages debt and spending. In addition, expenses come up and there never seems to be any extra money for paying down debt. I want to urge each of you to participate in a challenge. Just leave a comment about one positive step you’ve taken for your family each day. Did you eat in instead of going out? Did you save money at the grocery store? Did you pay extra on your credit card? Leave a comment below and we will cheer one another on every day and every step of the way.
* I will also be sharing my progress from the day prior.
My Progress: I had a good day yesterday. I hung out around the house for most of the day. We ate all meals at home including salad with grilled chicken and hard boiled eggs for dinner. I also cooked up some bacon for BLT’s for lunch. I ran out to get a few FREEbies from my favorite local freebie site. I got a full, unopened 240ct. bottle of SmartyPants for Women gummy vitamins. They can cost up to $30 for that size bottle and Kayla loves them, so I was thrilled to get them. I also gave a few items away on the same site. I love it that it’s a give and take site – gift what you don’t need and get what you do… The rest of my day was spent getting the girls ready for school to be back in session today. I also spent time watching Liv practice her basketball skills out front. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !
